Abstract : This study is concerned with programmed instruction in general and computer assisted instruction in particular. The study developed a programmed instruction course in arithmetic and geometric progressions to be used with the IBM Computer Assisted Instruction System currently installed at the school. The course is designed to be used, after extensive testing and revising, in a feasibility study to determine if this method of instruction is superior to the lecture method of teaching basic mathematics to graduate students in the Navy Management Program.
